Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Leviticus Has Been Interesting

August 20th, 2017


Last week was the final chapter of our series through Leviticus, but today I wanted to conclude the series today with some review questions. Maybe we’ll play a little ZONK, like you did in Jr. Church! No, sorry.

Warren Wiersbe summarized Leviticus this way:

  1. Our God is a holy God. Worship is not about man, but God.
  2. God wants His people to be holy. What health is to the body, holiness is to the soul.
  3. Holiness begins at the altar. Not at a church meeting or an event, but at personal heart sacrifices. 
  4. Holiness involves obedience and discipline. Personal choices, not just broad forgiveness over “all.”
  5. Holiness must be from God and be genuine. Nadab and Abihu showed what God thinks of a fake.
  6. Holiness involves priestly mediation. The mediator between God and man is Jesus Christ, our Great High Priest.
  7. Lack of holiness affects our land. Sin affects more than just you.
  8. Holiness is not a private affair. Everyone was involved together in the expectations of holiness.
  9. Holiness glorifies the Lord. By not living holy, we hurt the image of God in our witness to others.
  10. Holiness means living to please God alone. We do not live holy to be applauded by people, but to be pleasing to God.

Even the “boring” parts were interesting once you figured out what they meant. Every image has meaning, and the big purpose was to show how GOOD God is to His people.

Today, let’s reflect on the book together and think about questions like this:

  • What’s your favorite part of the series?
  • What do you remember the most?
  • What was most surprising/shocking part?
  • What makes sense now?
  • How have you been helped?
  • What can/should you be doing differently now?

I’d like to hear your thoughts.
